Prepare your visit
Which districts should be favoured for shopping in Cannes? When is the best time to shop? The shopping areas in Cannes offer a multitude of choices. The whole city centre is a convenient place to walk around, with local and international shops to suit all tastes!
This is one of the advantages of shopping in Cannes: the practicality and low cost of parking.
On the road, parking is free between 12pm and 2pm, as well as on Sundays and public holidays.
In the 9 car parks managed by the Cannes town hall, the first hour is free and once a week you can also benefit from 2 hours free parking. At weekends, you can also enjoy a long shopping session thanks to 6 hours free of charge (3 hours on Saturdays and 3 hours on Sundays and public holidays).
Finally, during the Cannes shopping event, Sales and the City, a low-cost parking package is available for 5 days from 8am to 6pm to give you time to discover all the promotional offers from retailers.
Extend your stroll to the Forville market to enjoy a meal in front of the Carreau Cannois and its lively surroundings, or turn off towards rue Félix Faure, where numerous gourmet and convivial nuggets await you.
From the Croisette side
There’s nothing like dipping your toes in the sand between two shopping sessions! Treat yourself to a gourmet break on one of the Croisette beaches and enjoy a heavenly view of the Bay of Cannes and the Esterel massif.
